49 Days to Go!

It’s 49 days to go ’til the big day. There are still some minor and a couple of major things we have to accomplish. I’m still not too worried yet (I’m not sure when I would be), but there are some pressing matters that we have to attend to IMMEDIATELY.

On top of everything, I will have to intensify my training and if possible come into the gym 5-6 days a week from now. Weight training is still of primary importance to me, but I have to make sure that I am also doing lots and lots of cardio. The hardest thing is to eat clean. EATING CLEAN, during the holiday season is IMPOSSIBLE. I will have to try my best to filter out what I eat whenever we go out with friends too. I think I have to follow a strict “21-days to break a bad habit” approach on this one.

I think I also need to do yoga again. My sleeping pattern is weird again.

Please please please wish me luck.

Gym Days

Thursday (Nov.10): Zumba Fitness Blast at Gold’s Gym Libis (30mins)

Attended this event with my friend Jam. It was a fun lively event but it was sooooo hot in there. After about 2 songs, I was dripping wet and tired. They are still renovating the place, so hopefully it would be better soon.

Friday(Nov.11): Weight Training (Upper body and core)

Wednesday (Nov.16): Boxing

Have been idle for a while and the last 2 days this week. I felt really weak at boxing today specially my right arm. I usually don’t ran out of breath, but today, I felt like I was gasping for air the whole time. Need to intensify more. Will be making up for lost time tomorrow by weight training. I have to get back on that groove!

Gym Day: Weight Training

I look forward to my gym days. After every training sessions, I feel strong and lean and light. I had 10 minutes of speed interval on the treadmill and a total body weight training which makes me really really hungry because my metabolism goes hyperactive whenever I do weight training.

It’s so hard when you are doing it, you feel like you are dying right at that moment. But after every set, I feel rejuvenated and then we go on another set.

I can’t seem to get my stance and form right at the beginning, but I pick it up as we go along. I just seem to forget everything. Next time I should be more aware of what I’m doing so my trainer won’t scold me. 😀

I should also remember the names of the exercises we’re doing so I can list it down properly.


Positive Reinforcement

Starting to see some definition on my legs. They are noticeably leaner. Need to do extra work on my inner thighs though.

Arms are also getting leaner, although they’re still way too big for my liking. It’s exciting to see changes and it makes me more motivated to continue!

My regular workout regimen right now is weight training 2 times a week (my trainer keeps on changing my program so I don’t get bored, but man, the intensity keeps building up!) and boxing once a week. I squeeze in a Zumba lesson per week too. I also have more energy on the treadmill which is now my bestfriend (elliptical not cutting it for me anymore, unless I raise the resistance level).

I am dreading squats now (overhead dumbbell squats in particular), but it’s toning my rear, so I can’t complain, can I?  😀

Still can’t believe I am living this lifestyle. Still in awe every time I go to the gym and actually enjoy it. I used to spend 30 minutes in there and can’t wait to get out. Now, I spend about 3-4 hours on gym days and can’t get enough!
